Consequent To Forgetting To Replace A Lens Cap

On the previous three Sunday mornings, I tried but failed to get up very early (i.e. 4am) and ended up sleeping in until 10am or 11am. Partly this is because I work every evening, and have to spend a couple of hours afterwards to take my dogs to the park, and then there's the problem of food and of reading various things online - so by the time I get to bed it's usually well after midnight.

However, this morning I managed it. I got up at 5.30am and was ready to go - only to suddenly remember that during the week I had forgotten to replace the lens cap for my 250mm (I lost it somewhere on that mountain in Dongshan). The camera shop doesn't open until 2pm and there's no way I want to be carrying around the lens with a greater risk of it being scratched or damaged until I get a replacement cap. 

It's a double-shame because the rain from this week's typhoon finally stopped yesterday and we're now back to sunshine, blue skies and fluffy cumulus clouds. I might try some shots of Agongdian or Jianshanpi this afternoon instead.

Later... the camera shop is closed on Sundays and there are a lot of heavy dark clouds rolling in from the mountains. Wait until another break in the weather next week...
